The Next Generation Network (NGN) Data Center Core Cutover was successfully completed this past weekend, on September 16, 2018. The upgrade work of replacing Data Center core equipment and migrating from old to new was a substantial undertaking and disruption was minimized as much as possible. We would like to thank all of the team members who helped us successfully complete this important work!

The team addressed issues concerning VPN and the TC Telephone system. All were resolved and the network is stable and operating normally. Any questions or reports regarding WiFi or wired network service should be directed to Technology Help at 612-301-4357 or help@umn.edu.

The next major phase for NGN is the wired network replacement segment, which is targeted to begin on the University of Minnesota Twin Cities St. Paul campus in fall 2018. If you have any questions, please contact Technology Help or the NGN team at ngn@umn.edu.
